OhioRaven on 12/18/2015:
I could use a Vodka right now.

grannyannie on 12/18/2015:
Try a Smirnoff vodka and melon. Sweet and delicious.


puddles on 12/18/2015:
I will joint you guys in the vodka but I enjoy it with Clematoe juice. My favorite. I rather have a scale stuck on a number then going up Annie.

grannyannie on 12/18/2015:
Yea, I'd rather have it stuck than going up as well! :)


OhioRaven on 12/18/2015:
I learn SO much on this website.

Not going to allow myself a treat until I get to 140 lbs.  Then a treat for each pound I lose.

Progress as of today: 26 lbs lost so far, only 6 lbs to go!

puddles on 12/17/2015:
It all looks good Annie. The treats are the killers are they not? Holidays always have some treats different from the home base. Enjoy your day.

grannyannie on 12/18/2015:
Since I'm regulating my treats I'm doing well. Scale is solidly stuck at 64.1 kg (141 lb) since Sunday.

Cloudy day so not as hot and sweaty.

Gym:  

  • 3 x 12 upper body with dumbbells - 11 routines
  • 3 x 10 lunges, side lunges, squats, calf lifts
  • 15 mins elliptical intervals
  • 10 mins treadmill

Home:

  • 3 x 10 abs, bridge, planks, pushups, triceps dips

Kayaking about 2 miles

Progress as of today: 26 lbs lost so far, only 6 lbs to go!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 12/16/2015:
The fried pork and veggies with a beer sounds like it hits the spot. Sometimes the extra fat is really satisfying. I do that with avocado a lot when I feel like i'm not getting in enough fat i'll have at least 1/2 avocado with my meal...

Also, kayaking sounds wonderful!

Where do you kayak? Love hearing about your travels because maybe one day i'll go there! hahaha :)

grannyannie on 12/16/2015:
This pork wasn't fatty like at the other restaurant so tasted like a very low fat meal.

We are across the road from the beach - Gulf of Thailand - quite calm. So we are keeping our kayak on the beach and just keeping our paddles at the house.


OhioRaven on 12/16/2015:
I saw an interesting fact yesterday. Thailand is one of the hottest places on earth, with the temperature 90 F almost every day of the year. I think it was on The Weather Channel.

grannyannie on 12/16/2015:
It depends on what part of the country - it's quite big. On our island it's normally 29-31 during the day - all year - mid 80's. At night it cools a bit and we do get sea breezes which help a lot.


OhioRaven on 12/17/2015:
Tell the Hubster " Hands off your Biscuits" !

grannyannie on 12/17/2015:
LOL! He doesn't like the biscuits that much so I usually eat mine and half of his!

OhioRaven on 12/15/2015:
You get ALL that ! Looks good and filling.

grannyannie on 12/15/2015:
Soooo yummy!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 12/15/2015:
Well, I gotta say, that chicken wrap looks AMAZINGLY good! and the smoothies are so colorful!

Man, are you living it up! Happy for you. I think you're smart to keep going with weighing in while away, especially if you are eating different food than usual and trying to enjoy doing it without gaining weight. It's great you are being so active, that surely helps a GREAT deal.

Keep us updated on your vaca, I love living it a little thru you! enjoy Annie :)

grannyannie on 12/15/2015:
Thanks! It's very healthy food! The plan to include treats and to only have beer or other alcohol 3 times a week is a good one.


biscottibody59 on 12/15/2015:
Curious what the actual wrap is made from.

All looks good--and very satisfying!

grannyannie on 12/15/2015:
Not sure what all the ingredients were, but each bite was a burst of many flavours. I will definitely have this again.


puddles on 12/15/2015:
It all looks real good. The drink are amazing. You seem to be enjoying yourself and keeping healthy Annie.

grannyannie on 12/16/2015:
Yes, I am. I swore the same thing wouldn't happen like last year - gaining a ton and feeling all my clothes get tight. Buying a scale was a good idea as well.

How hot is it by you?

keep up the great work on exercise & nice indulgences on food & treats lol!

grannyannie on 12/14/2015:
It's about 30C/86F every day. And humid. But sea breezes help a LOT.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 12/14/2015:
that is pretty hot especially if humid :)

grannyannie on 12/14/2015:
We try to stay indoors in the AC in the middle of the day and do activities early morning or late afternoon. Lots of breezes though help a lot. And a tepid swimming pool and sea. I do have to peel my clothes off a lot!

You're a tough cookie, Annie.

grannyannie on 12/13/2015:
Cookie, did you say cookie??!! Mmm


Horn_Of_Plenty on 12/13/2015:
Don't give yourself too much punishment for an extra treat. Move on from it :)

You are doing great with exercise & I am happy you are enjoying yourself on vacation - with all the exercise and being with your hubby & everything.

It's so nice to live it up and enjoy life. happy for you.

grannyannie on 12/13/2015:

I would love to have one of those looks real good. Enjoy Annie

grannyannie on 12/12/2015:
Thanks, I did! Treat next week will probably be mango & sticky rice.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 12/12/2015:
12mi bike ride sounds wonderful & treat looks extremely tasty :)

how long are you there on vaca for & is that your husband sitting opposite from you?

all the food sounds extremely flavorful - not boring

grannyannie on 12/12/2015:
We are here for 3 months - Dec - Feb. Yep, that's hubby. He's having his usual cappuccino but it looks like his hand is on my glass. The food here is healthy, yummy and cheap, so we don't cook.

Haha! 330ml alcopop! (not quite 12 oz).


puddles on 12/09/2015:
Good job Annie

grannyannie on 12/09/2015:
Thanks!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 12/09/2015:
You are smart to be proactive and get that fan so that you can work out more efficiently. Smart thinking....

Anything we can do to make it so we can exercise more efficiently despite the obstacles is smart on our parts. nice.

grannyannie on 12/09/2015:
I just happened to notice these small personal fans when we were buying a second fan for the house. Glad I did!


thinkpositive on 12/09/2015:
Smiling at Ohio's comment ! Good job on your exercise!

grannyannie on 12/09/2015:
